The Joys Of Twin Pregnancy!!..And DCM day!

Well its Friday again! I managed to miss last Friday and only got my dare card up mid week..shame on me!!

I'm now at 27 and a half weeks! In lay mans terms that's about 6 months...and I tell you I'm feeling it! Back ache....sleeplessness....intense breathlessness....exhaustion...sensitivity...wierd numbness in my left leg..feel life a beached whale... oh and of course an octopus beating me up from the inside! I say octopus seeing as there are 4 arms and 4 legs! Its actually kind of weird as there is so much movement compared to when I had Ibrahim!

On the up side DH is being super nice! And I have been baby shopping for a few essentials!!

SO on to today's dare now I have got that out of my system! Today's DCM dare has been set by our own Tracie who is only a couple of weeks behind me so maybe if we ever get together our girls can play together!!

The card for this dare can be any theme but must have an element of hand cutting in it!


I hand cut the card base and the papers, also hand cut the greeting.
Papers are K&CO Amy Butler collection, the pink is a scrap of BG which I ran through a cuttlebug embossing die. The stamp is from a super cheap Papermania set. Prima blooms and some buttons!

I love your card Saffa, it is stunning!
I can sympathise and empathise with the way you are feeling, I had twins 7 1/2 years ago and man was it different to a single pregnancy, no comparison! I was shattered, I gave up work completely at 5 months and had to sleep everyday. It is so special though, you will find once they are here loads of strangers peering into the pram and everyone asks if they are twins...well, kind of obvious! It is so funny, but also kind of nice to have so much attention just for having babies!
